Chairs' Letter – September 2022

By ratnadharini on Fri, 30 Sep, 2022 - 22:03

Dear Order Members and Friends,

I’m writing this month’s update from Aryaloka retreat centre, in the US. When I first became College Chair I planned to connect up with Order members outside the UK, but Covid restrictions put international travel on hold for a couple of years. Three weeks ago I set off on a road trip with Aryadrishti, one of the American Order Convenors, taking in some of the places I’ve not been to before: Seattle, Portland (Oregon), Missoula,...

Chairs' Letter – July 2022

By ratnadharini on Sun, 31 Jul, 2022 - 23:49

Dear Order Members and Friends,

This month we hear from two of my deputy-chairs, Punyamala and Jnanavaca, who have recently arrived back from leading Ordination courses at Akashavana and Guhyaloka.

With metta,
Ratnadharini

From Punyamala:

It has been my great good fortune to spend the last 11 weeks at Akashavana, the forest retreat of luminous space, leading an international ordination retreat during which 18 women entered the Order.

It feels foolhardy to attempt...

Chairs' Letter – May 2022

By ratnadharini on Tue, 31 May, 2022 - 18:50

Dear Order Members and friends,

As well as being College Chair, I’ve come to hold various other responsibilities within Triratna, including currently being a Centre President and involved in the International Council. Looking back, becoming part of the women’s ordination team at Tiratanaloka was probably the most significant factor in shaping this life; but actually it goes back even further than that and has really emerged from a network of kalyanamitrata…

I first encountered the FWBO / Triratna in London, when I was...

Chairs' Letter – January 2022

By ratnadharini on Mon, 31 Jan, 2022 - 17:31

Dear Order members and friends,

A week or so ago we received news of the death, at the age of 95, of Thich Nhat Hanh, founder of the Order of Interbeing and the Plum Village tradition of Engaged Buddhism, and well known for his teachings on mindfulness, peace and ecology. I still have my copy of ‘The Miracle of Mindfulness’ from 1988, when there were far fewer Dharma publications generally available in the west, and remember how...

Public Preceptor Appointments for India

By ratnadharini on Thu, 30 Sep, 2021 - 10:18

Dear Order Members

The College of Public Preceptors is delighted to announce the appointment of four Public Preceptors: Abhayadana and Vijaya from Nagpur, and Abhayavati and Shubhajaya from Pune; all from India. These are especially significant appointments as there have been no Indian women Public Preceptors active in the College since Jnanasuri and Karunamaya each retired for health reasons (although they, and Srimala, continue to support the situation).

Abhayadana worked for 20 years as project leader for an...

New Chair and Deputies for the Triratna Preceptors’ College

By Vidyatara on Sun, 22 Mar, 2015 - 15:58The Preceptors’ College has a new Chair and three new Deputy Chairs.

The College’s main job is overseeing the Triratna ordination process, but it also sees its role within the Community as passing on the spirit of the Triratna Buddhist Order by preserving, sustaining, developing and communicating Bhante’s particular presentation of the Dharma.

After an evening of celebration and rejoicing on March 14, Saddhaloka took over as Chair of the Preceptors’ College from Dhammarati following his...
